Activision har netop afsluttet deres store Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 livestream. Black Ops 4 dropper singleplayer delen for battle royale i form af Blackout.

Afsløringen af Black Ops 4 Battle Royale mode, er ikke den store overraskelse. Sidste måneds rygter viste sig at ramme stort set plet. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 får en Battle Royale mode kaldet “Blackout” og vil, som det første Call of Duty-spil, ikke indeholde en singleplayer-del. Der bydes også på køretøjer (vehicles) i Blackout.

Rygterne viste sig derved at være helt korrekte. Black Ops 4 er den første Call of Duty-titel som dropper singleplayer – til fordel for ikke et men tre zombie maps og så den nye battle royale mode, Blackout.

Det forventes at Activision stadig vil sig de $60 for spillet, hvilket nok ikke alle vil synes er en fantastisk ide. Godt nok er Call of Duty en af de allerstørste franchises, men Activision synes overbeviste om, at mange vil gribe dybt i lommerne for en game mode, som bl.a. Epic Games eksekverer ret flot og især gratis i Fortnite.

Spillets multiplayer-del blev også afsløret og (naturligvis) også byde på zombies. Vi fik intet at se fra Battle Royale-delen og vi har efterfølgende også spurgt Activision om vi ikke kunne få bare lidt materiale. Det må vi desværre vente på.

Med spillets specialistklasser, nærmer Black Ops 4 mere en hero-shooter og synes at hente inspiration fra både Overwatch (Blizzard) og Rainbow Six Siege (Ubisoft).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 udgives den 12. oktober til PC, PS4 og Xbox One. PC-versionen vil kun være tilgængelig via Blizzards battle.net klient – ganske som førnævnte Overwatch.

Vi har pressemeddelelsen samt yderligere to trailers (multiplayer & og zombie mode) herunder. Du kan finde 4 trailers mere på Call of Duty YouTube-kanalen nu. Vi har også tilføjet lidt screenshots, som er ankommet lidt senere. I fravær af singleplayer, har vi naturligvis valgt en lille håndfuld multiplayer-billeder.

Har Activision spillet forkert ud med Black Ops 4 eller hvad mener du?

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE) — May 17, 2018 — It’s time to soldier up because Black Ops is back! The series which has become the most played in Call of Duty® history as well as a cultural phenomenon around the globe returns October 12th with the release of Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4, a gritty, grounded, all-out combat experience. Black Ops 4 raises the bar for Multiplayer mode that increases tactical gameplay and player choice, along with the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full experiences at launch, and Blackout, where the Black Ops universe comes to life in a massive battle royale experience featuring iconic characters and locations from all four Black Ops games in a one-of-a-kind offering that is uniquely Black Ops. Published by Activision and developed by award-winning studio Treyarch, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 transforms the established universe played by hundreds of millions of fans with the largest gameplay experience ever created in the series.

“Black Ops 4 gives our community more ways to have fun with their friends than anything Treyarch has ever created and introduces meaningful innovations to every element of the game, including next level tactical team-based multiplayer, the biggest zombies offering yet and Blackout, where the largest map in Call of Duty history brings together the rich universe of Black Ops,” said Rob Kostich, EVP and GM, Call of Duty. “More than 200 million players have called Black Ops home, and they’ve played for more than 15 billion hours. This is an incredible community that has inspired the development team to take their innovative gameplay design to new heights.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12th. Fans can pre-order now and get access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private Beta*. Black Ops 4 for thePC delivers a fully-optimized experience, which for the first time in Call of Duty’s history will be available exclusively on Battle.net, Blizzard Entertainment’s online gaming service.
The game was revealed earlier today in a livestreamed community event broadcast worldwide across 10 languages, as Activision and Treyarch unveiled an unprecedented first look along with a trove of detailed game information.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 features gritty, grounded combat, along with new levels of customization and tactical gameplay, and a variety of new weaponry, maps and modes for the ultimate Black Ops multiplayer experience. The game features the return of the iconic Pick 10 system, along with a series of innovations in weapon controls, combat flow, health regeneration, and player movement. Black Ops 4 goes deeper than ever before into the fiction of multiplayer, where players will explore the world of Specialists – who they are, why they exist, and what battles they fight together – while mastering their gameplay through solo and multiplayer combat experiences. Black Ops 4 features a combination of new and returning Specialists, each with their own unique weapons, equipment and playstyles. Players will be powerful alone, but devastating as a team working together.

“Black Ops 4 is by far the most ambitious title our team has ever created,” said Dan Bunting, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “At its core Black Ops has always been about challenging convention and boldly taking our gameplay in new directions. With Black Ops 4, we’ve designed an experience for all play styles and skill levels from casual to competitive. It brings a layer of tactical depth that rewards players for mastery, and just feels so good to play.”

Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the original Call of Duty Zombies, Black Ops 4 also debuts an entirely new and unprecedented Zombies experience that’s the biggest Day One offering in franchise history – with three fully-featured Zombies experiences at launch – IX, Voyage of Despair and Blood of the Dead. With immersive new adventures, a brand new cast of characters and a nefarious new enemy, Black Ops 4Zombies will feature the deep gameplay and easter eggs that the rabid community of fans devours. It also includes the most customizable action to date, new systems for creating and completing community challenges, and social systems designed to connect players. Black Ops 4 also reintroduces difficulty levels and an in-game tutorial to onboard new players to the Zombies universe, while giving hardcore players the option of ratcheting up the challenge. Additionally, Zombie Rush is a brand new mode that streamlines the gameplay experience, introducing enticing new challenges to grizzled veterans, while creating a whole new tempo of gameplay for newcomers.

In addition to unveiling Multiplayer and Zombies in today’s world premiere, the team also introduced Blackout – the new battle royale-style experience that combines Black Ops’ signature fast, fluid, guns-up combat, with fierce new levels of survival competition across iconic Black Ops settings re-imagined at a colossal scale. Blackout is an experience unlike any other game or mode in Call of Duty history, where players will have to scavenge, strategize, compete and survive to win. Featuring the largest map ever built in Call of Duty – 1,500 times bigger than Nuketown – Blackout thrusts players into a collision course as they play as classic characters spanning the history of the Black Ops series including the original Call of Duty Zombies Origins cast. Battling solo or in teams, players will engage in diverse combat complete with ground, air and sea vehicles across a gamespace unlike anything ever in Call of Duty. Players will encounter fan-favorite Black Ops map locations and call upon a massive arsenal of Black Ops weaponry and equipment as the winner-takes-all action creates a new way to play Call of Duty.

“The Black Ops community means everything to us, so we knew in order to deliver something really special for our fans like Blackout, with the biggest map we’ve ever created in Call of Duty, we had to push ourselves and our tech to the absolute limits,” said Mark Gordon, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “The same goes for our PC community. They have inspired and fueled us to set a new standard on PC across every aspect from dedicated servers and security to full optimization and polish that’s worthy of both Black Ops and Battle.net.”

For the PC, Treyarch is co-developing with Beenox, who together are working closely with Blizzard to optimize Black Ops 4 for Battle.net. Black Ops 4 represents the largest development team assembled for a PC title in the series. Black Ops 4 on PC will have uncapped framerate, 4K resolution and HDR, support for ultra-wide monitors and the ability for players to extensively customize the performance and visual quality for their specific hardware. In addition, players will be able to select from pre-set control options, including options for left-handed players, or fully customize the keyboard and mouse controls to their preference. In addition, Treyarch and Beenox worked closely with the team at Blizzard to incorporate Battle.net’s social systems, security, and server stability into Black Ops 4 to prepare for the release on Battle.net on October 12th.

  1. #1 Hvorfor det?

    Tror de har valgt rigtigt, med at introducere BR mode til deres spil. Og de har umiddelbart også gjort rigtigt i at droppe SP. Jeg synes at SP historien i de senest CoD spil har været kedelige og intetsigende!

    Jeg regner ikke selv med at skal have det nye CoD, men skal se nogle streams af hvordan BR tager sig ud i CoD

  2. #3 Black Ops3 var et af de allerbedste, og mest spillede CoD set over hele det år det var aktuelt.

    Så… nej.. Det er ikke deres problem

  3. Kan godt lide at COD Black Ops`s skal låne nogle lidt fra både PUB, Overwatch og ikke mindst R6: Siege. Gammel øl på nye flasker.

    og tilmed ingen singleplayer del.

    I det mindste udkommer det ikke på Steam.

  4. #4 Det var maaske et af de mest (paa grund af fans) solgte i serien ja, var det godt? saa afgjort nej. Maaske er det ikke de eneste grunde, men jo et problem!!!

  5. Så vidt jeg kan huske solgte det ikke specielt godt i forhold til andre titler. Det var det bedste og mest spillede cod siden mw3. Det havde en kæmpe spillerbase langt ind i næste års spil. Pga advanced Warfare var røv. Men også fordi det var balanceret og havde nye og sjove måder at spille på. Låner de fra andre? Ja. Hvem gør ikke det idag. Man er du hvis man tror nogen kan lave et banebrydende spil uden at havde ideer fra andre spil med.

  6. De vil jo helt sikkert tage samme pris for spillet til trods for manglede single-player. Spændt på at se hvordan det klarer sig.

    Og battle royale for $60? Tror jeg vist ikke. Og med alle typer vehicles? Kæft en fest

  7. Maa tilstaa at det jeg har mest imod det nok er den massivt urealistiske og barnlige setting i spillet. Jeg mener fjernstyrede bier, c’mon . . . (FACEPALM)

  8. De har analyseret BO3-spillerne og kun 4% af dem gennemførte kampagnen, som var ret udskældt.

    Deres logik byder dem så at droppe singleplayer, da de tilsyneladende ikke har evnerne til at lave en god kampagne, hvilket vi egentlig burde sætte pris på.

  9. #13: BO3 kampagnen var, til forskel fra BO1 og BO2 kampagnen, også så ringe. De to første spil gjorde det godt på den front.

    Treyarch har nok bare erkendt at de ikke er specielt gode til den del.
